Chloe Newsome started this petition to Jackson Women’s Health Organization

Though the House Bill 1510 has been passed to ban abortion in Mississippi after 15 weeks, I intend to help support Jackson Women’s Health Organization. They are currently in the process of suing the state for passing the bill. They are fighting for pro-choice and standing up for women’s rights, as the only abortion clinic still standing in Mississippi.

House Bill 1510 would ban women from having abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, unless the unborn baby is not expected to survive outside the womb or if the woman’s life would be jeopardized by continuing the pregnancy. If passed, this bill will stand as the most restrictive abortion ban in the country.

Currently, Mississippi already has quite a strict ban on abortion. Current state law prohibits the procedure after 20 weeks of a woman’s last period. Since Mississippi is already a state with one of the most restrictive abortion bans, the purpose of this bill is to essentially just make their state policy more extreme and work towards their ongoing effort of protecting unborn children.

Therefore, the goal of this petition would be to help protect a woman’s right to an abortion and to help work towards a less restrictive abortion ban in Mississippi. We need your support!
